Peer Review in Slovenia: Long-term care – the problem of sustainable financing

Like most of Europe, Slovenia faces rapid population ageing. This places huge strain on long-term care (LTC) in particular, and the country has no unified system for providing it. To address this deficiency, a new Act on long-term care, personal assistance and long-term care insurance is being drafted. One crucial issue is how to fund LTC in a fair and sustainable way. This Peer Review will enable Slovenia to learn about the experiences of Member States where various different funding arrangements are used – in line with the Social Investment Package (SIP), which emphasises knowledge transfer and mutual learning as a way of ensuring the adequate and sustainable delivery of LTC.

Peer Review in Poland: The Active Ageing Index and its extension to the regional level

The Active Ageing Index (AAI) focuses on the untapped potential of older people, measuring their independence and participation in paid employment and social activities. In 2013, in a unique move, Poland decided to conduct research into the construction of an AAI in all 16 of its provinces (regions). This Peer Review will provide an opportunity to explore how Poland set about this task (methodology), why it took such a step and what benefits it has identified. It will also consider whether such an approach could be usefully applied elsewhere.
